comment Can Shapesharer copy an enters the battlefield ability, like Stoneforge Mystic's?
A change in a permanent's characteristics (power, toughness, name, abilities, etc) is not a considered an entering of the battlefield. Entering the battlefield is a change in zones.

Trying to use as much of the confusing text as possible is not a worthwhile goal. Actually removing confusion is.

comment How does the wording “for each” work?
@user1873, No, 608.2e is not about APNAP; it's about handling abilities with multiple steps or actions. It mentioned that each action is performed at once, which answers the OP's question. As for 608.2g, why do you bring up LKI again??? You've already agreed that LKI has nothing to do with the question! "getting an answer once if an effect requires it" doesn't help either.

@user1873, Wall of Shards.... interesting. I'll have to bring this up at Wizard's Rules Q&A.

@user1873, I don't know what you're looking it, but 608.2 has nothing to do with APNAP. 608.2 explains how to resolve spells and abilities.

@user1873, I don't see how 700.1 helps. (wtf is a "happening"?)

@user1873, You had asked about a single effect with multiple verbs. I did mention Life Burst in my answer, which has two verbs, thus two effects, and thus two events

@user1873, 4) Re "Do you have an emample of a one-shot effect that uses multiple verbs and causes you gain life in two separate events?" Of course not. Each verb is an effect. Like I said, count the verbs.

@user1873, 3) Re "I don't buy the 'count your verbs' argument." Then give me a counterexample. I would be interested in what other kinds of words denotes the taking of actions.

@user1873, 2) Re "Then you might want to mention spells than deal with LKI due to zone changing, and needing to look back in time at the game-state before and after an effect." ???? I don't see how LKI has any relevance.

@user1873, 1) Re "Maybe quote the section in the CR that deals with effects", 608.2 is too large to quote. I quoted the subsection that's relevant to the answer.

Proposed rewording still not perfect. Other tickets need not use the same route even if use the same station. e.g. Red has Brest-Frankfurt completed.
